The Center for Persons with Disabilities at Utah State University

The Center for Persons with Disabilities is Utah’s federally designated University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD). The CPD was established in 1972 by Dr. Marvin Fifield, and was the first UCEDD program in the nation to focus on the educational and social needs of children with disabilities. Over our 45-year history, the CPD has grown into one of the largest UCEDD programs in the nation and is recognized as a pioneer in research, training, technical assistance, and services for children and adults with disabilities, families, and the professionals who serve them.
